Went by yesterday and today. No luck. Still the same 3 athenas and a load of jentle. No Maruzen. It is true now you are only allowed 1 bottle per person even if they have more than one color.

Yes. One bottle period now. I guess some people try to buy them all out. You used to be able to get 1 bottle per color, now just one bottle period of the Maruzen.

I picked up a bottle of blue at the nihimbashi store on my "Tokyo tour of pen shops", and after the day of touring shops, on the way to an actual work meeting, I checked out the department store in Fuchu..... Go figure....

I am in Kobe for a few days and both main stores that sell Kobe ink have a 2 ink limit and must be different colors.

Seems other shops are following suit--Usagiya is doing the same now.

The green Athena bottles (Black/Blue/Blue Black/Sepia) are not limited right now, just the Maruzen colors (when they are in stock).
